Not recommended due to poor construction and function (falling apart after 18 months)

Brenna Boyd, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this computer a year and a half ago and wanted to return to leave a review. I researched laptops before settling on this one, which I purchased partially on the strong positive recommendation of a friend. Initially I was happy with the laptop and its functioning. However, about six months in, it literally began to fall apart.

Computer died after less than 3 months use

  • Summary: I ordered this computer right before thanksgiving and received it quickly. Lightweight, everything seemed great....until today, just a few months later when I went to turn it on and...it won't turn on. Completely dead. I've contacted the company who sold it and I'm hoping they help resolve the issue, but if not I've just paid over 500 for a computer that worked for less than 3 months.

Got it a year ago and going on perfectly fine. The size and weight are perfect for me

  • Summary: Got it a year ago and going on perfectly fine. The size and weight are perfect for me. Didn't have any trouble making the transition to the new Windows. Sometimes I experience some connectivity issues with certain WiFi networks, but then just need to set things manually. For work, social media programming, skyping, writing and doing research online, is the perfect fit.

  • Summary: Perfect :) Shipped immediately and arrived quite timely considering the Italian post office. Lightweight notebook with good performance (ssd disk does well its job). The sound is good even if speakers are positioned under the notebook. Champagne color is very nice. I recommend it.

Horrible!

A. Trofimov, Amazon

  • Summary: Just want to note that the laptop WAS NO FUNCTIONING when it arrived. WIFI DID NOT WORK. I had to manually look into it on another computer and flash the BIOS. This means if I didn't have another computer, I could not get this one to work! Horrible!

I do not recommend this

Travelbug, Amazon
16 December 2014
  • Summary: I had to get a Windows based PC for work, and I made a terrible decision selecting this one. Since I'm a little spoiled by how well Mac's work, I find this laptop a complete disappointment compared to my Mac Book Air. The build quality is flimsy, the speed is slow, and the monitor's color is off. I barely even touch it now since it is so annoyingly slow. I do regret very much about this purchase. I should've spend a little more to get a more decent PCI.

Pros and Cons

David Lee, Amazon
15 December 2014
  • Summary: It's thin and the laptop size is perfect to take around. However, when I'm actively typing on it, the fan is pretty loud. When I'm not actively typing on it, there is no sound so it's this constant back and forth of the fan getting loud then soft then loud then soft etc... Additionally, the mouse pad is similar to a mac, however, when you press down on it it's pretty loud...I'm trying to get used to all these things.

  • Summary: I got this computer for my college-aged daughter and after a day it stopped responding. The mouse was super sensitive and would take you to screens you didn't want to be on. The battery only lasted for two hours. It's super slim and attractive, but avoid the headache and buy a different computer.

It's really nice but since the moment I got it

Maritza S., Amazon
7 December 2014
  • Summary: This it's very difficul for me make a commentary about this laptop. It's really nice but since the moment I got it, the charger isn't in the box, JJJTech trait me like a thief, anyway they send me the replacement charger (like a concecion they said), but it's seems that the battery doesn't work because the laptop only work connected. JJJtech said I'm a laier and now I have something that doesn't work and nobody to help me.

Not worth the price

gely01, Amazon

  • Summary: This computer runs very slow! I'm a college student on a budget and all I wanted was a lightweight laptop for basic use such as browsing the internet and using Microsoft Word. I've been highly disappointed! The computer freezes all the times and even watching YouTube videos is a struggle.
